First the dimensions of the book were much smaller than I had anticipated . It is virtually a pocket book . Secondly I was looking for a book to improve my conversion of colour digital photographs to black and white images. This book certainly does give a lot of clear instructions on how to go about but this task but in addition it covers the field much more widely - the history of photography, the work of famous black and white photographers, the adoption of colour images by magazines and news papers, the relationship of photography and art , how to appraise colour images and their suitability for black and white conversion etc etc. All in all a very instructive work and good value.
